The Rise and Fall of the National Organization for Marriage

Marriage in Maine Needs Your Help

September 08, 2009


We’ve been reporting on Maine for a while and now that the campaign is in full swing, advocates to preserve marriage equality in Maine need your help.

The same anti-equality forces that spent millions and spread lies to pass Proposition 8 in California have set their sights on Maine. The National Organization for Marriage, Focus on the Family and the PR firm behind Prop. 8 have gone East to overturn the marriage equality law that passed this spring.

There’s a lot riding on the outcome of this vote – marriage equality for Maine and momentum for our fight nationwide.

HRC has been on the ground in Maine for months, working with local groups across the state and the NO on 1/Protect Maine Equality campaign. We have less than 60 days until Mainers will vote on a Prop. 8-style initiative that would void the marriage equality law enacted this spring.

Now if the time that we need you to invest directly in this critical effort – give to the HRC Maine Marriage PAC.

This isn’t just about Maine. We can stop these anti-equality forces – and when we do, we’ll help protect and defend marriage equality everywhere. Thank you for your help.
